Another Demi dis! Tourmates and longtime BFFs Demi Lovato and Nick Jonas got pretty candid about everything from exes to their days as Disney stars in a joint cover story in Billboard magazine’s latest issue, and the “Body Say” singer took a jab at Jonas’ ex Olivia Culpo.
The “Jealous” crooner, 23, touched on his breakup with beauty queen Culpo in 2015 after two years of dating, and said he'd really leaned on Lovato during the split. “I internalize things, so we have this rule that we never want to hear about it in a tweet or something. She’d read me the riot act, so she’s the third person I call — my dad, Joe, then Demi. She was like, ‘Just go, create and be free.’ She also said some other things …” he said.
The “Cool for the Summer” singer, 23, didn’t hesitate to make her feelings known about the former Miss USA. “I go, ‘Honestly, I didn’t like her anyway.' It’s not because she’s mean or anything, but he has such a great sense of humor and I want him to be with someone that makes him laugh. I can tell if something’s up because he’ll close off.”
Lovato hinted that she even told her pal to dump Culpo while they were still dating. “He’s a guy in his twenties and he’s famous and he likes to have a lot of fun,” she told Billboard. "Listen, even when he was in a relationship, I was like, ‘Get out of that. You could f–k anybody that you want right now, so have fun and do that.”
The “Confident” songstress is unattached too after she recently called it quits with boyfriend of six years Wilmer Valderrama, but she’s not quite ready for anything serious yet. “It’s not on my mind, but I welcome anything,” she said of dating. “I’ll have fun. But a relationship … I won’t want that for a long time.”
The two stars have been friends since they filmed Camp Rock together back in 2008, and the Kingdom actor said Lovato’s relationship with his brother Joe made them even closer. “Well, for a couple of years there was the Joe and Demi romantic thing, so I’d be this emotional bridge for them. But she and I were productive — we’d write songs about it. We became even closer because it was never going to be [romantic],” he said.
Camp Rock was the film that totally solidified their status as Disney stars. “We joked around that it was Disney High, except we were shooting shows and really overworking,” Lovato said. “I joke that I sometimes have PTSD after leaving the channel because if my schedule starts to get too busy, I rebel and I get bitchy.”
Whether Lovato is calling out Culpo or Disney Channel, she seems to get into her fair share of Twitter spats. She even recently slammed Mariah Carey for her “nasty” digs at Jennifer Lopez. When asked if she ever heard from the “We Belong Together” superstar, she laughed. “No. I’m sure she’s sitting on diamond records not giving a f–k what I have to say. That’s fine. I don’t even give a f–k what I have to say. That’s why I just say it,” she said.
